NASS 2022 – ePosters, Presentations and Learning Toolbox
NASS 2022 is again using Learning Toolbox for the ePosters (including Headliners) and Innovative Technology Presentations at the conference.
Learning Toolbox allows you to create a Stack of material that can be used to present and share your work online and onsite. At the simplest level you can just add your presentation to your Stack, but the platform allows you to do much more.
Your Learning Toolbox Stack/ePoster should contain your presentation but can also contain additional materials such as videos, weblinks, papers and more.
Since you will upload your presentation to your Learning Toolbox Stack/ePoster then you will no longer need to upload your presentation to the NASS system.
The following dates are important:
- 17th May – Invitation emails sent to ePoster authors from Learning Toolbox (email@example.com)
- 31st May at 11am CT – Webinar for authors. Zoom meeting link.
- 25th August DEADLINE – Finalise your stack (ePoster/presentation) and mark as ready to print and publish
The only NASS requirement for ePoster authors is that you include a PowerPoint presentation in your
- Authors must create and upload a PowerPoint presentation into their LTB Stack
- Your PowerPoint must have a minimum of 12 slides
- NASS will no longer create your title and disclosure slides. Disclosures will be readily available elsewhere. Please feel free to include your own title slide, which does not count towards your minimum slide limit.
- Vendor name, product names or logos should NOT appear anywhere in your Stack
If you want more eyes on your ePoster, you need to make it stand out! Luckily, your Learning Toolbox Stack is highly customizable and interactive. Take advantage of this by linking/uploading videos, weblinks, additional documents, link between your other ePosters, and much more! The guides on the Support Page (demo video, written guide, webinar recording) explain how to do this.
Learning Toolbox supports an exciting new approach to ePosters (and more generally content sharing) at online, hybrid and onsite conferences and events.
Using Learning Toolbox you will create a Stack/ePoster (a collection of material that could include a presentation, video, weblinks and more) that you can use to present and share your work at the event.
People will be able to easily view and interact with your ePoster by browsing the online ePoster showcase. Your ePosters will be available for people to explore throughout the event and can also be presented in a scheduled session if your event supports this.
Viewers can open your ePoster and explore all the rich content you have added. Viewers can also post questions or comments to your ePoster, to which you can respond. This text chat discussion will be attached to your ePoster and can continue after the event. Viewers can also favourite your ePoster so that they can return to it more easily.
Your ePoster will also live beyond the event, as you can continue to share it and (in some cases) even add to it after the event.
Your ePoster can even have a physical presence in the real world. Within Learning Toolbox you can create a mini-poster that acts as an advert for and gateway into your interactive ePoster. People can simply scan the QR code on the mini-poster and your interactive ePoster will open on their phone/tablet.
Onsite and hybrid conferences will print these mini-posters and use them as a way of promoting the ePosters onsite. You can of course print the mini-poster yourself and use it wherever you want to promote your work and provide access to it.
Many conferences are now using Learning Toolbox to present, share and discuss research. We have seen some great examples of ePosters/stacks created by authors attending these conferences. The 3 minute video below explores some of the great ePosters made by authors using Learning Toolbox.
You can see and interact with these great ePosters (and more) on the Learning Toolbox Showcase. These ePosters are live and still being used by authors to present and share their work. You will see that they vary in terms of what content they include and how they are structured, but they have all made great use of the platform to present their work.
Of course your own ePoster/stack does not need to be as sophisticated as these examples – a simple and effective ePoster/stack may just contain the abstract, a presentation and a link to a website for example. But we hope these examples may give you an idea of what is possible and some ideas of the type of material you could include to give people a richer view of your work.
We would like to thank the authors of these ePosters/stacks for agreeing to their excellent work being showcased here. If you have come across any brilliant Learning Toolbox ePosters that you would like to see added to this showcase then please let us know so that we can contact the author and ask for their permission to add them.
Thousands of ePoster authors are using Learning Toolbox to share and present their work at conferences and events. The ePosters can be as simple as an uploaded PDF file, but can also include more interactive and engaging material, as well as background information.
Below are short videos with 4 of our authors in which they talk about what they chose to include in their ePosters. Thank you very much to Amy, Komal, Nathan and Sytske for making these videos. We hope they inspire and help new authors.
